Family/Teacher Conferences: Fall Conferences went very well! We had 68% of our families visit our school to see how their students were doing. For Arena Style Conferences, This is a great number. If you were unable to stop by, please contact your student’s teachers this week.

Attendance: Being in school is more important than ever! Student learning occurs during school hours. Often, students will complete assignments or practice concepts outside of school. Students missing school, for whatever reason, will miss part of their education.

Winter Break: Friday, December 20th is a half-day. Students will be dismissed at 11:20 AM. Students will then be on winter break for the next two weeks. School resumes on Monday, January 6th.

SBAC State Assessment: Students in grades 3-8 and 11 will begin taking the Smarter Balanced English language and math assessments in March. The State of Oregon passed a law allowing parents to opt their students out of taking these assessments. A letter describing this process, as well as the importance of these assessments, has been sent home with students in grades 3-8 and 11.

Parents/guardians who wish to opt their students out of taking this assessment are asked to come to their school, discuss the decision with your student’s principal, and pick up the required opt-out form from the school office. This form must be completed and turned into the school office before assessments begin.
